No Pigeonholes Archives ( originally titled Vol. 9) Approx Feb 1986 Hosted by Don Campau on KKUP, 91.5 FM
For some reason when I started recording all the No Pigeonholes shows I did not use the specific date of the show itself but numbered them by the consecutive hour. In other words, this show , âVol.9â would have been the 9th hour from the original starting date in Dec 1985. That is why I think it must be around Feb 1986 for this broadcast. (I did two shows per month, two tapes per show). Later, I put dates on the shows. And, when I first started doing all cassette programs I had to deal with the fact that KKUP only had two cassette decks and one was for recording only. So, in order to do a seamless show I always brought a cassette deck from home that I plugged into the KKUP board. Needless to say doing an all cassette show was a challenge. I never knew how long the songs were or when they would run out. Sometimes I played the wrong side of the tape, sometimes the tapes would jam. I had to spend a great deal of time âcueingâ up the tapes beforehand. CDs have sure made my job easier.
This particular show was broadcast soon after I had written a response letter to the editor at The San Jose Mercury News which had run an article on the âunderground musicâ scene. Of course they made no mention of the cassette scene and doted on bands like Depeche Mode. In my letter I had ripped them on this and brought up names from the cassette network like Ken Clinger and Sue Ann Harkey, which they misspelled.
